I'm working on "Ubuntu 6.06 LTS ISP Server Setup" and have a default "Drupal CMS On An ISPConfig Server Within 10 Easy Steps"
I have a site http://abcd
, configured in ISPConfig, this works fine.
Now i would like to enable a site http://abcd/def
which will have its own Drupal table_prefixes, users, modules, themes - basically a site by itself.
The steps i followed were:
- Modified settings. php as in previous post
- Created a new site http://abcd/def
- In Co-domains, clicked on site and set up forward to the web doc root of http://abcd
NO DICE !! But a command line implementation worked ...
ln -s . def
That allows the web server to serve requests to the "def" subdirectory from the main drupal directory. The conceptual leap for me was that the "def" subdirectory is virtual: it only exists in Drupal's database, but if you want to send people to it, the webserver needs to have directions.
I'm sure there is a more sophisticated way to do this using .htaccess or perhaps even ISPConfig, but thought I would share my solution. It's quick!
